Cars. Street lights. High rises. More pollution and more people means that areas of dark sky are becoming far and few between. So in attempts to promote astronomy, “Dark Sky Reserves” are areas with light restrictions, giving way to pure starry sights.
If you’re a Londoner, it’s probably been a while since you’ve seen such a night sky (sobs), but luckily for you, LG have teamed up with the Bristol planetarium team at We the Curious for what’s shaping up to be an event of awe and learning.
LG have created a time-lapse of the night’s sky passing above London, exactly as it will happen, showcased with LG OLED TVs, all to create the UK’s first Urban Dark Sky reserve.
As well as this reenactment, Countdown’s Rachel Riley will be hosting a panel exploring the night’s sky, the importance of STEM subjects, as well as LG OLED technology.
